Ford Sets Forth Its Safety Recall - Articles Surfing


Ford Motor Company in connection with its endeavor to promote safety and protection among its vehicle users has announced that it will enhance its 2005 speed control. Said safety recall will include certain speed control-equipped gas or natural gas 1994-2002 F-250 through F-550 F-Super Duty trucks, 2000-2002 Excursions, 1994-1996 Econoline vans and 1996-2002 E-450 vans, as well as speed control-equipped 1998 Mountaineers and Explorers. According to the automaker about 1.2 million of these vehicles are presently used in the United States.

"Today's action includes those vehicles that were identified as having a interaction issue between the speed control deactivation switch and the brake system that could, in rare cases, cause the switch to overheat and ultimately catch fire," said Ray Nevi, assistant director, Ford Automotive Safety Office.

During the previous year, Ford conducted a recall of about 5 million vehicles to affix fused wiring harness to the speed control deactivation switch. This was done to get rid of the probable risk of fire if the switch leaked. Said harness stops electrical current caused by the leak.

"Following last year's recall, we indicated further analysis would continue to determine what vehicle characteristics were contributing to the potential for switch leakage. After a year of intensive research, including working with NHTSA's engineers, we have concluded that certain factors on the affected vehicles may lead to the switch overheating," Nevi added.

Leakage may be caused by overheating. Failure may also be a result of repeated high vacuum events. Moreover, to solve the potential predicament facing vehicle users, the automaker has prepared sufficient supply of Excursion Ford parts wholesale, Ford Econoline Van parts, Ford F350 Super Duty pickup parts and more parts to cater to other mentioned vehicles.

The upcoming safety recall includes orientation of the switch on the brake master cylinder and frequent high vacuum events at the switch because of the typical brake system operation.
